    Chica and Theresa, as always thanks for being there, and here, and stopping in, and, and, and…Gringa, Glad you found me, I’ve been reading you for a while. Paperwork, They need soooo many copies because they can’t file anything. And with 3 copies of everything, odds aer you’ll stumble across it sooner than later.Lin, love the new photo.Debi

    Hi Debi, I just found your blog and added it to my Google Reader. Thanks for the link. 😉 Your wall is going to look great and help so much with the heat. I read the article about the documents needed for the permit(s). Amazing that you ever got it! Don’t you wonder what the heck these Latin-American governments ever do with all these documents? The must have warehouses full of papers.

  4. We drove by today, we had been out and about and decided to stop and get Chicken at the place around the corner. Looks like it will be done soon. The chicken was very good.regards,Theresa

    WOW It took so long to get the logistics in place but it is really coming along! Now we won’t be able to see your house from the tourist bus! (?Why tour Merida if you can’t see Tom and Debi’s house…?) Who did you finally chose to do the job?

  6. Tom and Debi says:

    Thanks Jonna and Lin,It is coming along, the wall went up quickly and seemed dramatic, now there is a lot of framing and structural support stuff being done to support the roof once we remove the white poles. So the changes aren’t as dramatic but are still happening.THe last photos shows the facia of the roof all picked so that as the wall goes above that line it can secure securely. It already makes a difference in the street noise, butu we aer now creating all the dirst that is blowing in to the house.Keep checking in, more to come.Debi

    Wow. I walked past your house yesterday and recognized it from the photos. I guess the positive comment I can make is the house looks like it has a lot of personality, and the wall is coming along…they were working their tails off! Hang in there.Lin Dorton

    They’ve gotten a lot done, it’s amazing how fast it goes sometimes. Then there are the other times 😦
